Wanted the 305/45/22 on my stock ext. Had ordered them in and the tire store mounted the first tire on the front left and it would have rubbed. They re-ordered 305/40/22 and no problem. Dont know if there is a slight difference in Escalade models, just know the 45's would rub slightly on lock turn. the 40's dont have the "low" look. The ext responce is tighter and sharper with these tires. There is a slight lower drop in fuel economy with the wider tires, still well worth it.
